In another blog, we looked at the great commission. Be encouraged by that blog, then in this blog we are talking about “How to Go?”
Going into all the world to preach the gospel sounds so overwhelming it would be easier to just go back to doing nothing.
D. L. Moody thought differently…
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And that which I can do, by the grace of God, I will do.”
Luke 15:8-10 The Parable of the lost coin…Jesus said
“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
The Father in heaven desires all to be saved. He uses us to reach out to the lost.
Just like the woman, when the coin was lost she did all she could to find that coin. She turned the lights on, she cleaned the house, she didn’t stop until she found it.
God wants us to do whatever it is we can, just as Moody said, “I cannot do everything, but I can do something.”
We can all do something. Maybe you are the one to notice a lost person. Maybe your the one to turn a light on in someones life. Maybe your the one to help them clean the dirt out of their life. Maybe you are the one to actually lead them into the hands of Christ.
So How can you do this in the real world?
Sometimes just being there and willing to answer someones question is the best thing for that person.
Let people know You…the Real YOU. When you are willing to talk about your faith and church as a norm it lets people know you aren’t afraid or ashamed of it. Don’t be afraid to let people know you are a person with problems just like them. Your not a robot, don’t act like it. People need to know real people who have found real change.
If you are the one who has the opportunity to lead them into the arms of Christ. Be clear about salvation. Know what Christ has done and what we need to do to be saved.
Do what you can as one person to benefit the body of Christ.
